LEGO has finally unveiled this year’s first LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) set via its YouTube channel. Enlisting the help of legit LSW fan David Hall of Solid Brix Studios, we now get to see up close and personal the LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship (75309). In case you missed it, check out this unboxing video.
As you may already know, the LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship (75309) is the eventual winner of the poll that was done via the LEGO Ideas platform last year. LSW fans were allowed to choose which particular Star Wars ship among three choices would they like to see rendered as a UCS set. Eventually, more than half of the votes were cast in favor of the iconic assault transport.
Clocking in at more than 3,200 pieces, this UCS version of the Republic Gunship was designed by Jens Kronvold Frederiksen and Hans Burkhard Schlömer. If you recall, Hans was also the designer behind the largest LEGO Star Wars UCS set which is the Millennium Falcon (75192) from 2017. He shares more details about the creative process that went through the designing and building of this latest UCS set throughout the rest of the video.
The LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship (75309) is expected to retail for $350 when it arrives on August 1, 2021. You may read more about it via LEGO Shop@Home, or by clicking on the following affiliate link below.
